A MAN accused of attacking his ex-girlfriend will stand trial.
Michael Whitfield was at South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court facing a charge of assault.
The 38-year-old allegedly injured the woman by throwing her out of his house in Alice Street, South Shields, between Saturday and Tuesday last week.
He pleaded not guilty and will be back at the court on November 11 for his trial.
Whitfield was granted bail until then on condition he does not contact prosecution witnesses and keeps away from the woman’s street.
